Enemies of the People (The Journalist and the Mass Murderer)
The killings organised by the Khmer Rouge stand as one of the greatest crimes of the twentieth century. One of its key architects was Nuon Chea - Brother Number Two. In this film he and some of those involved in the day-to-day killing are interviewed, and the wider impact is examined. Members of director Thet Sambath’s family were killed, a fact he initially hides from Chea. When the filmmakers refused to make the rushes available in Chea's trial, citing journalistic responsibility to their source, the film became the subject of intense debate.
Lance Armstrong was the most successful road cyclist of all time, winning 7 consecutive Tours de France and inspiring millions with his charity work after surviving testicular cancer. His fame brought him sponsorship deals worth millions and he became one of the sporting world's most dominant presences. Yet almost all his success depended upon doping. Getting away with it for so many years engendered a callous carelessness that brought everything crashing down. This film follows this collapse through interviews with those who uncovered, investigated and worked for Armstrong. A thorough examination of the biggest sporting scandal in our time.
In 1997, rap superstars Tupac Shakur and Christopher Wallace (aka Biggie Smalls, The Notorious B.I.G.) were gunned down in separate incidents, the apparent victims of hip hop's infamous east-west rivalry.
Nick Broomfield's film introduces Russell Poole, an ex-cop with damning evidence that suggests the LAPD deliberately fumbled the case to conceal connections between the police, LA gangs and Death Row Records, the label run by feared rap mogul Marion 'Suge' Knight. Broomfield uncovers a compelling world of glamorised violence, police corruption, racial politics and murder.
